Getting Through COVID-19 Together (Virtually) - The Importance of our Online Support Community

Founded in 2002, The Well Project was created to be a trusted virtual resource providing accurate, relevant, and up-to-date information on women and HIV. Over time, we are proud to have helped foster the development of a robust and dynamic community of diverse, resilient, and empowered women living with HIV across the globe. We have seen first-hand how this community has helped women living with HIV overcome stigma, fears, and isolation. These three negative forces have a way of rearing their ugly heads in moments of crisis, like the one we currently find ourselves in with the COVID-19 pandemic. We want you to know that The Well Project is here for you in these times of uncertainty, and will continue to provide you with evidence-based and trusted information, as well as be a source of community support and connection.

Limiting close physical contact* is one of the best things we can do to slow down the spread and acquisition of COVID-19, but it can also leave us feeling alone and isolated, which in turn can have very negative effects on our mental well-being. The Well Project has always prioritized the need to holistically manage HIV, and while the physical implications of the COVID-19 pandemic are not to be ignored (especially for our aging community, those with underlying conditions and/or compromised immune systems), managing our mental health remains equally important.
